Ahhhh...Opening Day

Baseball is in the air again, as the major leagues kick off the 2008 season today! Cyclones fans know that the real Opening Day isn't until June 17th...but we'll make due in the meantime with whatever baseball we can.

Nine former Cyclones are on major league rosters to start the season (with a 10th, Scott Kazmir, on the DL), so there are plenty of Brooklyn alum to root for -- especially the two on the Mets, Joe Smith and Angel Pagan. They'll be taking on the Marlins to start the year, with Florida's roster featuring Cyclones alum Mike Jacobs and Matt Lindstrom. 17 Cyclones in total have made an appearance in Brooklyn and then gone on to appear in the majors.

Watching the rising stars before they're stars is just part of the fun of being a Cyclones fan. You never know who -- or what -- you'll see next at KeySpan Park!
